Hi all,

I have started the first steps for a new version of this portal.

I really need your input on functions, designs, logos, so please, don't hesitate to come with surgestions.

I have listed some of my plans so far:
  • Layout
    • Inspiration of a MD80 cockpit
  • Functions
    • Personal gallery
    • A forum with a better personal area for your own project than we have to day
    • Better support for youtube and other media
    • Articles / Guides
    • Upload / Download of project files (images, docs etc.)
    • implantation of Airport and metar information
    • An iPhone optimized portal aswell (will come after the release)
This project has been planned for a long time and lots of houors has allready been used to analyze the SQL that power this portal and to find a layout...

I hope I have a dummy preview ready for you sunday 2011-03-06 at 17:00 Zulu
You can follow the dummy layout here:

http://layout.md80project.dk/

http://layout.md80project.dk/forum/

http://layout.md80project.dk/gallery/

http://layout.md80project.dk/gallery2/

The new MD80Project portal will be developed from scratch zero with no data lost - but it takes time...

Therefore I give you the oppertunity to come with your input now, so it can be planned into the project as well...

I will start a pool for all the incomming input later this month...

An then my sparetime is booked for developing...

Please feel free to reply to this topic, for your input...

Hi

It sounds like an exciting idea.

I thought if we could get a field where you can post news from the real world.

A field where images from the galleri is running as a slide show.

A world map which shows were we build MD-80 simulators.

In general I think the current version is good. You should definitively keep the "last 10 topics" on the mainpage. It's what I use most often. But will be exiting to see someting new.


Kind Regards,

It could well turn out to be a good design

Just a thought, if you push it all down a bit, make 3 windows over the glare shield in which there could bee  still pictures or a slide show.

You could also use the NAV display, with a silhouette globe, marked with the cockpit builder.

Last 10 topics could be designed as a checklist

Great to have inputs and new ideas Thumbs-up

I really have trubble with the last 10 topics...

I only have 1,100 px overall in horisontal to play with...
I had actully a checklist in mind for this, but I failed to make it so you can get the idear of where the insperation came from. So I made the inspiration from the systempanel without the flapsindicator..
I will go in think mode again for this...

I had i mind that the FMC will have a link coordinates for google maps to show where the projects are located, with the project you clicked at in focus...
I think that the design need to be clean an simple... But I have notised your idear and I think I have an idear to accommodate your proposal... I can let the link open in an innerpopup that is formed as the NAV disdlay..

I noticed your idea about a gallery preview in top... I like it, but I belive that it will take to mutch place to make it...
There's 3 windows above the glereshield = 3 pictures... Most pictures are in 10:15 or 16:9 format...
the glereshild is 1,000 px width... This will set the width for a picture to about 350 px and in an 10:15 format this will set the height to about 230 px

 This table is 350 px width and 230 px height


This is to mutch - then I could set 5 pictures in and this will set the dimenssions down to 210X140 px
The next issue... is't random taken pictures from all the galleries ?? or dos it random take one gallery and there take some random pictures ??

lot of stuff to think about Wink

But please... Don't hold you back to come with even more idears... I really do appricate it Thumbs-up

Looks good. I'd prefere without a gallery on the main page though because it will load faster.

Photos at the top it does not work quite so well.

 

A little brainstorming comes here.
